I am having this problem as well, but I don't have the answer to it.

Subject: [Snort-users] Having trouble using -b switch

I'm a fairly new users to SNORT so bear with me.

I'm running snort 1.8.7 for Windows (from the binary snort-1.8.7-win32.exe)
WinPcap 2.3 and the latest stable snort rules (last modified 9/26).

Withing the local.rules file I have the following rule:

alert tcp any any -> any any (msg:"TCP traffic";)

which is a test to make sure snort is working properly

When I try to run snort with 'snort -d -l log -b -c snort.conf' when the
local rule is active, I
receive the following error in a popup window:

snort.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.  You will need
to restart
the program.  An error log is being created.

When I run 'snort -d -l log -b -c snort.conf' with out the local.rules
active everything
works properly.

Has this happened to anyone else using snort on Windows?  If not, what am I
